Sophie, Countess of Wessex got in a great workout this week and it was even for a good cause.
On Tuesday, the 56-year-old royal joined cyclists who are visually impaired for a tandem bike ride in Bushy Park, Richmond. Per the official IG account of the royal family, the ride marked the launch of Vision Foundation’s, of which Sophie is Patron, new initiative to tackle rising unemployment among people who are blind or partially sighted.
During the outing, Sophie rode a tandem bike with the charity’s appeal manager, Monica. Prince Edward’s wife led direction at the front of the bike as the "pilot" while Monica sat behind her and worked as the "stoke.” For the occasion, Sophie looked athletic-chic in a royal blue ensemble with black leggings and a white helmet.
Luckily, we got a glimpse of Sophie in action, thanks to a social media post featuring photos from the special event. In fact, there was even a clip of the Countess of Wessex and her partner cycling in the rain. During a second clip, the royal chatted with other bikers after the ride had ended.
